The Lost Field Notes of Franklin R. Johnston's Life and Work Among the American Indians
Franklin R. Johnston's field notes -- recently rediscovered after more than half a century -- are a milestone in the history of anthropology. Johnston lived and worked among Native Americans from 1905 through 1939, carefully and meticulously documenting his experiences and discoveries. This book is lavishly illustrated with photographs from Johnston's own collection and other important sources, and with Johnston's original field drawings.Johnston knew Geronimo and was perhaps the last serious scholar to interview him before his death in 1909. Johnston went on to spend much of the next three decades amassing an important body of data before much of the primary source material was lost forever. He also created the largest private collection of Native American artifacts in the Western United States, and made the only film of the mysterious Hopi Snake Dance. A true adventurer, Johnston also led expeditions to the Cocos Islands off Sumatra, and located Pirate Morgan's lost treasure in Costa Rica.
